The first terrorist bomb attack occurred on the Pan American World Airways airliner traveling from Japan to Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on August 12, 1982. Mohammed Rashid planted a time-delayed device while travelling on the same plane hours earlier from Hong Kong to Japan. He was convicted of the bombing in 1992 by a Greek court, released in 1996, and rearrested by the USA in 1998. The blast mortally wounded a Japanese boy, 16-year-old Tom Ozawa, and hurt 15 other passengers. Rashid noted during the May 15, 1998 U.S. Indictment that he was a PLO member, and the bomb was planted with assistance from Christine Pinter, his wife whose whereabouts were unknown.
